C program to print ASCII table/chart



In this C program, we are going to print the characters with their ASCII codes? As we know that each character has some specific predefined code (ASCII - American Standard Code for Information Interchange), here we are printing those codes using a C program.

What are ASCII Codes?

ASCII stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange; it is a character encoding standards for information interchange in electronics communication. Each alphabets, special characters, etc are represented by the ASCII code. An ASCII code takes 7 bits in the memory.

Reference: ASCII Codes

Here, we have to write a program in C programming language that will print the ASCII table. In this program, we are printing ASCII codes from 32 to 254 along with their character values. To print the values, we are using a for loop, where counter will start from 32 and stop on 254.

Program to print ASCII table in C

//Program to print ASCII table.
 
#include <stdio.h>
int main()
{
    unsigned char count;
    for(count=32; count< 255; count+=1)
    {
        printf("  %3d - %c",count,count);
        if(count % 6==0)
            printf("\n");
    }
    return 0;
}

Output
